330 ml. bottle @ Little Ethiopia during Enkutatash apparently first day of Ethiopian New Year. I quite liked the food but this is just your average African Pale Lager. Clear orange with little head. Nose is sweet oily & syrupy corn and sugar, faint vegetables, far too sweet. Taste is sweet oily corn & candy, metallic, poor far too sweet nasty oily corn, sugar, quite tiresome after a while. Body is far too oily, sweet, soft carbonation.

Mild smell of straw. Golden colour, small white head. Aroma of malt, sweet fruit, maybe peach. Mildly bitter.

Also not bad, but not as good as Hebesha or Harar. So many choices in Ethiopia and theyre all the same...

Typical lager from a country where beer isn't popular. Grassy aroma. Dry and bitter finish.

massingasetta (721) - Mnchen, GERMANY - JUN 15, 2015
This beer surely is not pretty nor is it the most tasty, but we are talking about a beer in Africa. It surely is a drinkable international lager and fine when drunk in the hot sun.

Grzesiek79 (4223) - Radom, POLAND - JUN 4, 2015
Bottle beer from Beers of Europe. Piwo bez etykiety z owijka na szyjce. Brak informacji o zawartosci alkoholu itp. Ale wyglad ma ok, pianka spoko, spora i trwala nawet, kolor ciemnozlocisty tzn nie slomkowy. Zbozowo kukurydziany posmak zmieszany z cukrem. Nic szczegolnego poza dedykowanie piwa na grill lub goraca plaze.

Pyrmir (5864) - Uppsala, SWEDEN - APR 14, 2015
On tap at the airport in Addis. Tasted like a german pilsner, fairly sweet and malty but with more hops and higher bitterness. Not too bad

DSG (13906) - Tel Aviv, ISRAEL - MAR 18, 2015
Bottle shared at a tasting at Ariels place. Thanks Mom for this bottle! Clear golden with a white head. Aroma of grains, a bit of hay and a faint grassy hint. Sweetish grainy flavor with a papery hint and faint bitterness in the finish. Light-bodied. Pretty non-offensive and drinkable.
